MLS Preview: Colorado Rapids (2-1-1) at Real Salt Lake (3-1-1)

Real Salt Lake has dominated Colorado in the Rocky Mountain Cup in recent years, winning 16 of the last 23 meetings dating back to 2014 (D2 L5). Salt Lake had won three straight visits to Colorado before the Rapids recorded a 2-1 home win at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park last August.

The Rapids are unbeaten in 18 straight home regular season matches (W11 D7), the longest active streak in MLS, including winning the last four in a row. The last team with a longer home unbeaten streak in regular season play was Los Angeles FC (19 straight) from August 2018 to August 2019.

Real Salt Lake’s unbeaten start to the season ended with a 1-0 loss to Kansas City on Saturday. RSL has lost two in a row just once in its last 21 matches dating back to the start of last September (including playoffs), losing at home to San Jose and Portland near the end of last season.

Mark-Anthony Kaye has scored in two straight matches for the first time in his MLS career. In fact, Kaye had scored just nine goals in his first 95 MLS appearances (including playoffs) and hadn’t found the net in his previous 30 games before scoring in the last two.

Damir Kreilach has scored six goals against the Rapids in his MLS career, tied for his most against any single opponent (Vancouver). Kreilach has scored only once in his last four games against Colorado but has contributed three assists in those games.
